TEENY GENIE KATE ...



Thank you Grazia, for causing me to guffaw loudly in WH Smith. At first I thought I also had a prime submission for Photoshop Disasters; but then I noticed the sliver of calf behind that teeny weeny thigh suggesting the lower half of her leg. Subtle. I have often thought that Grazia's covers look like they've been slapped together by a six year old with A.D.D. but I began to think, could something so out of proportion actually be an act of nature; caused by the angle of Kate Moss emerging from a car and thus towards the camera at the launch of her perfume in Berlin a couple of weeks ago? (Judging by the dress.) I'm sure Grazia could've chosen a better picture from the thousands taken at that event - perhaps one that didn't make her look like she has an ENORMOUS, GIANT HEAD, JUMBO SHOULDER PADS and SCARY ENORMOUS BLURRED SAUSAGE FINGERS - all precariously balanced atop weeny little matchstick legs, one of which is amputated at the knee.

I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one who laughed at the cover! I wonder what Kate Moss thinks of this comical out of proportion picture?

Kate said...

That's gross, really, she looks like an alien ... eeww. :-)

Thanks for posting the link to Photoshop Disasters. Great page, I had a lot of fun.

Brilliant link! What, you mean she doesn't really look like that? BB

Is it me or have magazine covers gotten worse and worse? U.S. Vogue has put out a spectacular number of amateur-Photoshop disasters, like Gwyneth's recent detached floating head number.
